Check out the pins and stickers at www.unamerican.com, there's tons of great slogans there. Also, I've always wanted to rip off the teeny bopper shirts that say stuff like "Hottie," "Cute" or whatever, and make one that says "Sarcastic"
http://www.fibershop.com/ gives 20% discounts on bags of 10 skeins/balls/hanks of yarn. They're good to work with, and I've done the bag of 10 deal with Berroco Chai for a matching handbag and stole that I knit for my prom.
I just recently made a white furry muff for a friend with a Berrocco eyelash yarn, I think it's called Zap. I doubled it up with Classic Elite mohair, and also used the mohair to make an I-cord so the muff will stay around her neck when she takes her hand out. I have a pic, but haven't figured out how to post them yet.
When I was in elementary school, we always made angels out of paper plates. Just make a cone, attach a semi circle of plate to the back for wings and attach some sort of head (styrofoam ball, painted wooden ball, felted yarn ball)
Hi everybody! This is my first post to the board, and hopefully I am in the right place for my question. I was at a flea market in Portsmouth NH and I saw bobbins/spindles wound with thread and made to look like Santas and snowmen. Has anyone else seen anything like this, and does anyone have any ideas on how to make them? I have bobbins, I am just not sure how to wind to make the bodies 3-D, and how to creat facial features and things. Thanks!
